    I 100% believe it works for you, I just don't believe that the same diet works for every human, same as the same diet does not work for every horse.

    Oats I have less issue with, because they are still close to the original ancient grains. Sadly the wheat that we grow today is not the same as it used to be, a with so many things it has been developed for yield, disease tolerance etc, and with very little thought given to the affect on the consumer.

    I am always very very wary of saying to any one "you SHOULD do this diet" and why people need to do their research, and ask themselves what works for me, in terms of both dietary preference, and how their body copes with it.

    Raw fruits & veggies are the BOMB!!! Great fibre sources, especially apples. Now I will recommend a go to workout DVD that costs less than $20 on Amazon, simple, uber effective moves, will kick your butt, make you sore as all get-out for a week or two, but will give you a body like dream of IF you do it at least 5 times a week & eat like I mentioned above. Jillian Michaels Burn Fat Boost Your Metabolism. The best DVD I have found to make you WANT to eat lean & healthy because you will have crazy energy for this work out after doing it regularly and see results quickly. Don't wimp out, you won't die, you can master within weeks, after 3 months of doing this workout & all you need is a mat & a towel for sweat & some space in front of your TV, talk to me again & I can give another recommendation.

    Whatever one you choose make sure it's not a "fad" diet. And think more "life style change" NOT "diet"! Look for one that has healthy balanced eating/drinking and exercise plans! Go to your local book store (or online store..amazon) and start reading the different books and different reviews. Atkins didn't work for me. I tried it on and off for a year, yes I lost weight but I then over ate carbs...can you say 6 cupcakes!!! For me exercise and being aware of what I'm eating has worked the best and has kept my weight maintained through the years. Losing weight isn't always easy, especially in the beginning when you're making all those life style changes! Good luck

    The zone diet worked for me when I stuck to it and for many its an easy life style change because the meals are not small and fill you up. And you eat 3 meals and 2 snacks - so it seems like you are always eating. Unfortunately I got stuck on the recipes and I hate cooking and used that as an excuse to stop. I really should get back and start incorperating it into my life again - I felt so much better.

    But the simple version of it is is to take your plate and divide it in thirds. In one third place a proper size portion of meat - I.e. Size of a deck of cards. Fill the other 2/3 rds of the plate with veggies and some fruit and finish out with a small amount of good fat - olive oil, avacado, black olives, almonds, etc. Easy and the website has tons of free recipes. Main thing is to keep the right balance of protein to carb to fat ratio and eat several times through the day to keep your body in balance.

    My favorite part is I could have a small glass of wine and a bit of cheese as a bed time snack once in a while. :)

    This.

    You can try all of the expensive, 'fancy' so called diets that you like, but honestly, a very low percentage of people actually lose the weight then keep it off for more than 12 months if going by those diets.
    The ones that try to fool you into thinking you can lose weight while sitting on the couch is a crock of rubbish.

    The BEST way to lose weight and keep it off, is to exercise more than what you eat. Simple as that.
    I thought that I was fairly fit and active, and ate really quite well but wasn't losing much at all.
    Joined the gym, within 2 weeks I had toned right up and felt great. LOTS of hard work, feeling like you're going to vomit, is required, but hell is it satisfying when you see the weight melt off.

    Yes, nix butter and fried foods. If you have high cholesterol, eggs are not a good choice.
